[bug report] historys does not work anymore
« on: June 09, 2008, 05:43:12 AM »
when you type historys, you see your past searches
but when you select one, it just closes FARR (instead of putting the past search inside the search box)

since i use historys (through a simple alias), noresults, and google search around 50 times a day, this release have been completely unusable for me at this point.
i really really hope those bugs are gonna be fixed asap

@nitrix-ud: i'd pay to watch a screencast of you working on your PC with Farr. maybe you're the right candidate to write a definitive guide on Farr's regex usage. 8)

It would really be great if nitrix (and others) would make some short screencasts demonstrating different ways they use FARR.

Because it is your moral duty to help those less fortunate than yourself, for whom I have elected myself to speak,
who are bears of very little brain.

Please don't Pooh-pooh the idea!
